A Stranger Broke My Heart Today

I have many followers on Facebook; many I don’t know personally. Many who have followed me simply because I followed them. But I do try to connect with as many as I can. I read their posts and comment on what touches me. Today, one such post reached in and gripped my heart.

I read about a woman whose life has been diminished because of health issues. She is no longer able to lead the life she once had and is now mostly in a wheelchair. Because of this, she…

What I Learned after Four Years of Surrounding Myself with Girl Hate

No one wants to believe that a life can be ruined by a few tweets.



I try to tell them, but they won’t believe me. They won’t believe that 120 characters could do real harm. They are so wrong. Girl hate is real and powerful and I’ve lived in it.

Getting Permission

The manuscript is done—it just needs copy editing and proofing, and then it will be a book. But it seems there is one more major hurdle I hadn’t counted on.

After spending the last five years writing this book, everything now hangs upon getting permission to quote from the letters of the figures I’m writing about. Chief among them are, of course, Constance Fenimore Woolson and Henry James. And it seems there are living descendants whose permission I need.

All along I had been…

On Death and Driving Lessons

I was two weeks shy of my 27th birthday when I moved back to my parents’ Toronto home after living away for nearly a decade.

Returning home was as hard a choice as it was an easy one. Hard because the idea of coming full circle felt like a failure to me; easy because I needed somewhere familiar to crash (and a warm bed and good food didn’t hurt, either).

What exacerbated matters, though, was my lack of a driver’s license. While I traveled via subway and cabs in New York City…

Writing Tip: Use Contractions in Dialogue

I recently bought an indie book written by a very nice man I met at a conference a few years ago. He and I have stayed in touch since then, so I wanted to support him and his writing. I really hoped to enjoy his debut novel, but unfortunately I…See More
